Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar – December 1 – 4, 2017

Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar
The Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar is December 1 – 4, 2017. This annual event is a fundraiser for the Mackinac Island Medical Center, St. Anne’s Catholic Church, Little Stone Church, Trinity Episcopal Church and the Mackinac Island Bible Church.

The Annual Christmas Tree Lighting (December 1) kicks the weekend off with caroling and good cheer. Gather at 5:00 pm across from the Star Line Dock #1. The Rummage sale then opens for early birds to get first dibs on the best buys in the Mackinac Island Fire Hall. Hot Cocoa and cookies are available!

We are very excited to announce that we have added a new event to the Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar!! Friday evening after the tree lighting (approximately 5:50 to 6:30 ish) there will be a Pig Roast dinner offered in the courtyard of the Community Hall, behind the Stuart House Museum. Pork roast, beans and cornbread, and drinks will be available. Cost? On Donation!! Please remember that proceeds benefit the Medical Center and 4 churches on the Island. Thanks so much to Andrew Doud and Doud’s Market for sponsoring this great event!

The Festival of Trees is a new addition for 2017. Area businesses and groups are decorating 18″ Christmas Tree Centerpieces that are auctioned throughout the weekend.

A 2017 Ski Doo Expedition Sport 900 Ace Two Up snowmobile is the grand prize for the annual raffle. Tickets are $2 each.

On Saturday, the Community Hall and Fire Barn open at 11:00 a.m. Lunch is served in the Community Hall at 11:30 and throughout the day! Santa arrives at 1:30 p.m. and kid’s activities are at 3:00 p.m. The live auction begins at 2:00 p.m. Activities for the day will be completed by 6:00 p.m.
